the tumbler emerging…
…its so big and so pretty!

And trust me, the pictures don’t do it justice!
ITS GAWJISSSS!!!
Anyone remember me blogging about winning second prize in Gnat of Glass’ competition?
Well, my prize finally arrived after Scott had a hard time getting it to me… and I went and collected it from the post office on Friday! I was so excited I wanted to rip it open in the car, but I knew it was glass and I was terrified of breaking it in my haste… I did shake it gently and heard no tinking sounds- which I took to mean it had arrived in one piece! When I got to the office I opened the box and there was LOADS of shredded paper on top, and gently rolled in bubble wrap under the paper was this glass tumbler- hand made by Scott himself with his own two hands! It even has a number etched on the bottom and the base still has a rough part where Scott cut it off the tube!
I haven’t decided where its going yet…
I LOVE IT!!!
Thank you Scott!
